Hi Cuties,

Wow! What a week it has been. I've been home every day sewing and have finished the Freeform Backpack from Sweetpea. What an amazing pattern, very stitch and time intensive, especially the large size of 6x10. I've made this one for Jasana in pinks and greens. I'll do one for Ryke this size, and for the other 6 grandchildren. I didn't have all the hardware so will get some tomorrow from my local shopping centre when I go down to get our groceries.
To top off this amazing week our son Ben (he separated last February 2019) moved out of our home after being here for over a year. We will now have to get used to not having 3 living here full time. He moved out yesterday and unfortunately, it rained all day.

We are so very happy for him after the year he has been through. Anyway, having my hobby has kept me sane and it's so nice being able to sew to my heart's content. Keep safe and well everyone. Love Chris

Great work Chris. Jasana will appreciate this for when schools re-open. ..At least you are getting beautiful things done.

Thanks Toogie, yes, all of our daughters' children have been at home all last week. Our son's boys are now home as of today. It's a sad time at the moment and I am so lucky that I am able to be at home doing something I love to do. Love Chris

Stunning work. As yet I have not had any sewing time but I have 3 Sweet Pea designs waiting... The detail on their designs is amazing. Good Luck to Ben on the next stage of his life and happy sewing
